When somebody dies, there are legal practicalities that have to be addressed. There are usually finances, property and possessions to be distributed, and in some cases there may be children left behind who need to be cared for.
A Will is a document that allows you to set out how you would like these legal practicalities to be managed on your behalf. Within your Will you can make clear who you wish to become responsible for your children, who you would like to inherit your property, possessions and money, and even what your wishes are for your funeral.
In order for your family and friends to carry out the actions you have set out in your Will, they will need to manage the administration of your estate and obtain a Grant of Probate.
